Heavy rains delay 3 new Heights restaurants

If Chris Cusack had his way, he would have three brand new restaurants to open this month. However, Mother Nature had other plans. ?It?s been an incredibly rainy year,? Cusack, who planned on having the grand openings for his three new restaurants in the Heights by the end of June. Cusack co-owns his restaurant management company, Treadsack, and Down House, Johnny?s Gold Brick and D&T Drive Inn, which are all located in the Heights. In October, Cusack broke ground on a building for two?

Prominent gay business leaders celebrate SCOTUS ruling

For Michael and Matthew Burrus-Pearce, today's Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality is less about the validation of their status as a married couple and more about their children. "The fact that in the eyes of my daughter and the state of Texas our marriage is no different than any other marriage, it's a huge victory," Michael told the Houston Business Journal shortly after the ruling. Michael is a lawyer for Schlumberger Ltd. and a previous HBJ 40 Under 40 honoree, and Matthew is the chief?

Houston-area company raises capital to commercialize fracking technology

Tomball-based Deep Imaging Technologies Inc. has raised more than $720,000 as a bridge loan to its Series B as it prepares to deliver its technology to market. The company's goal is to close a $1.5 million Series B round, beginning to raise the next round in the next four to five months, said Mary Helen O'Leary, vice president of operations for the company. "The money is being used to allow us to build some capital equipment in order to help us do field operations," CEO Trevor Pugh, told the Houston?

With LaMarcus Aldridge headed to division rival, Rockets refocus on in-house options

The Portland Trail Blazers had rolled into San Antonio, flying high after Damian Lillard?s spectacular buzzer-beater shocked the Rockets and finally moved LaMarcus Aldridge and the Blazers out of the first round. The Blazers had enjoyed a charmed season and the most exhilarating and triumphant of moments the first round of the playoffs could offer. Then Aldridge and the Blazers saw the Spurs? championship machine up close, were smacked around and quickly and quietly eliminated. Portland seemed to be a team on the rise, but remained far from the Spurs? standard. This was a feeling long familiar to most Western Conference contenders, and was likely experienced again on Saturday by [...]

Clay Buchholz silences Astros’ bats as Red Sox win on Independence Day

BOSTON ? Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz is where the Astros? 6-1 loss to the Red Sox started and ended. No one could accuse the Astros of lacking punch, considering the five-game win streak they entered Saturday with and the resilience they showed in a 10-inning, 12-8 win a night earlier. But the ?Stros have always found Buchholz a puzzle in limited exposure, and they didn?t score until the final inning in the middle game of three on a grey Independence Day at Fenway Park. Buchholz struck out eight, walked none and allowed six hits in a complete game, his first at his home ball park since 2012. In a [...]

Astros to activate Marisnick, send Santana back down to minors

BOSTON ? Jake Marisnick (left hamstring strain) is to be activated from the disabled list for Sunday?s game against the Red Sox, with Domingo Santana heading back to Class AAA Fresno. Marisnick had an extra-base hit, three stolen bases and a couple of walks Friday for Fresno in El Paso on Friday in his third minor league rehab game. Marisnick, who?s needed particularly now with George Springer out for a long time, could have technically returned Saturday at the earliest but that would have logistically been difficult because of travel and game times. Santana hit .256 with a .310 on-base percentage, .462 slugging percentage and a pair of home runs [...]

Astros report: Rasmus happy to return, fortunate infection wasn’t worse

BOSTON ? Colby Rasmus? first game in eight days didn?t go particularly well Saturday, with three strikeouts in as many at-bats as the Red Sox fell to the Red Sox 6-1. Considering the medical ordeal Rasmus went through because of an infection that was caused by a bug bite of some sort ? a spider is one theory ? it sounds remarkable Rasmus was simply able to return as quickly as he did. A fever, bodyaches that were ?real bad,? shaking through the night, chills and a rash that Rasmus said climbed up his left arm to his neck and even down his ribs kept him in Houston Methodist hospital [...]

Spurs land coveted free agent LaMarcus Aldridge

The San Antonio Spurs don?t often wade deep into free-agency waters, but when they did, they came out with the biggest catch of the summer. Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge announced on Saturday that he had decided to sign with the Spurs, immediately moving the Spurs from this season?s first-round playoff exit back to their more familiar position among the championship contenders. Aldridge had also considered the Rockets, but the Rockets had gone in to the process considering themselves longshots before a strong presentation gave them reason to be hopeful even as the Spurs remained heavy favorites and the Suns made themselves a viable contender. Aldridge also met with [...]

Carlos Correa, Jose Altuve pick up the slack as Astros top Red Sox in first game without George Springer

BOSTON ? Having George Springer, Carlos Correa and Jose Altuve as the first three hitters in the Astros lineup might have made for the best leading trio anywhere, no matter the specific ordering. In a 10-inning, 12-8 win over the Red Sox on Friday, the Astros played their first game of many to come without Springer, and the other two easily made up for his loss ? at least for a night. Altuve and Correa had three hits apiece and reached base a combined seven times in the first and third spots respectively, including go-ahead, tie-breaking hits from Correa in both the eighth and 10th innings at Fenway Park in [...]

Police investigate three early morning smash-and-grab robberies

At each business, the smash-and-grab burglars drove their vehicles into the sides of the buildings and attempted to remove ATMs and safes from the premises. Four unidentified suspects drove a white van into a Little Caesars off of W. FM 1960 at around 4 a.m. Friday, said Lt. Charles Hoover, with Harris County Constable's Precinct 4 Office. A different Little Caesars at 5700 Little York Road was also hit by smash-and-grab burglars who were able to remove a safe from the restaurant at 6 a.m. Friday. In the third incident, three males in a pickup truck reportedly crashed into a Citgo Quik Mart on the Easttex Freeway early Friday morning and attempted to remove the store's ATM but were unable to do so.

State Supreme Court to hear arguments in school finance suit

More than two-thirds of Texas districts sued the state in 2011 after lawmakers cut $5.4 billion from public education amid a budget crunch while raising academic standards. House Public Education Chairman Jimmie Don Aycock, R-Killeen, had promoted school-finance reform this year but withdrew his bill with the session deadline looming.

‘Freedom Over Texas’ Turns 29

July 4, 1986: On this day, Houston put on the mayor?s first official July 4th celebration, calling it ?Freedom over Texas?. The city?s largest July 4th party is now in its 29th year and takes place in Eleanor Tinsley and Sam Houston parks on Buffalo Bayou. Nearly 50,000 people show up each year with blankets and lawn chairs to take part in the patriotic tradition and watch concerts. ?Freedom over Texas? has headlined some of the biggest and most entertaining country stars like Jack Ingram, Pat Green, Leann Rimes, and Martina McBride. The events start at 4 p.m. though they actually used to start at 1 p.m., but the hot [...]

Russian rocket launches much needed supplies to the space station

12:05 A.M. FRIDAY UPDATE: The Progress spacecraft made it safely to orbit, right on time. When it docks with the International Space Station in two days it will deliver 3,100 pounds of much-needed food, supplies and gear for the crew, 1,900 pounds of propellant, 900 pounds of water and 100 pounds of oxygen. ORIGINAL ENTRY: The distant launch of a small Russian Progress spacecraft, laden with more than three tons of supplies for the International Space Station, would ordinarily command little attention. But tonight?s launch from Kazakhstan, at 11:55 p.m. CT, comes after a flurry of mishaps with space station supply vehicles, and now looms large for NASA and the station?s future. Live [...]
